Learn how Chris Mattia fixed the exposure of this scanned slide, cleaned up the dust and scratches, and then cropped the image to a perfect side for including in a PowerPoint presentation.
- [Instructor] To complete this challenge,…I started off viewing the image in Bridge,…and I did that by going up to the File menu…and selecting Browse in Bridge.…Now, since this image is a tiff,…I figured I would address those exposure issues…right away inside of Camera Raw,…so I right or Control clicked on the image…and selected, Open in Camera Raw.…Now as you look at the histogram,…you can see this image is slightly underexposed…with a lot of density down here…near the shadows and the blacks.…Also there's this large spike up here in the highlights,…so we want to address that as well.…
I dialed up the exposure by half a stop,…and then pulled a little bit of contrast out of the image…by dialing the contrast down to minus 10,…and to breathe a little more life into the shadows,…I raised those up to plus 10,…and we no longer have any clipping in our blacks,…and to deal with this clipping in the whites,…I pulled the highlights down to minus 25,…and dropped the white levels down to minus 10.…Notice that we no longer have any clipping in our highlights…
